Our first ever Challenge Match was a huge success!
Thank you to our generous friends who invested in our mission. You have already helped make 2019 a year of hope and optimism for the YWCA and our residents!
As a YWCA resident once said, “When I was finally
afforded the opportunity to live within the comforting shelter of the Y,
I felt like I was in heaven and it gave me great hope. I have a bed to
stretch my legs out on, a window to open and close, facilities to
utilize, a kitchen to cook in, and a fellowship of women to confide in and find strength with. Now, I have my own room in a safe place where my feet can actually begin to become planted on the ground. It has allowed me to begin to work at, for now, short-term jobs — but that is leagues beyond what I was able to practically do without a home. I know this is a
temporary living situation. However, it is giving me the foundation to
establish a more stable, permanent situation for myself. The YWCA has
absolutely improved my life and opened up a plurality of possibilities
for myself and others. Most of all, it has given me faith, optimism, and
hope for the future.”
